"It is with sadness that I write these words. Our province is in the mouth of the dragon. It remains to be seen if we will be clenched between its mighty jaws.

While some may argue that we are in a time of prosperity, I fear that they are looking with closed eyes. It is true that our province has become wealthy from the trade brought by the river mouth. But this wealth is also our curse. We are surrounded on all sides by Daimyo who want what we have."

The Abduction is an adventure for all types of characters, set in feudal Japan in a fictitious Han. Characters must rescue the daughter of a minor noble who is to marry into another noble family. She has been kidnapped by persons unknown, and for unknown reasons. If she should die, the honor lost will surely cause the Han to collapse economically. You must not let this happen! Your small party has been chosen so as not to attract attention to the disaster.

This is very nicely produced module - and shows some promise for future products. The page count is on the low side for $5, and two of the pages are taken up by the completely useless OGL. Why add the OGL if it's not a d20 product ? Artwork is computer [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
